The pomegranate fruit is assumed to have originated in Iran and Afghanistan. The fruit was used as a holy symbol and respected in Zoroastrian worshiping ceremonies and rituals. The pomegranate symbolized the soul’s immortality and the perfection of nature for Zoroastrians. about a hundred years later, it became a part of Persian mythology. If music be the food of love, then pomegranates would appear to run a very close second. Rumor has it that if pomegranates are consumed daily a surge in the hormone testosterone would lead to aphrodisiac effects. For a unique daily dose, I would opt for salacious pomegranate chicken wings at Noon-O-Kabab in Albany Park in Chicago. For this hedonistic delight, you will be going into paradise!
